7/22/11 Excellent vacation in lovely Colorado! This house was the perfect location - quiet, peaceful, able to accommodate a wonderful family reunion! The back deck is amazing - absolutely gorgeous views all day long, wonderful meals out there. The table under the trees is very special as well - great place for dining and relaxing! The wind through the cedars leads to unbelieveable inner peace. You have a wonderful home - cozy, inviting, open and warm - thank you for sharing it with us! Washington State, Colorado, Minnisota

8/8/11 Wow! Star Mesa fare exceeded our expectations and we have falledn deeply in love with 'the crown jewel of Howard'! From a parents perspective it was the perfect place to return to each day after enjoying all the area has to offer. The back deck looking onto the gorgeous meadow, pond and mountains beyond was a feast for our eyes. The home itself is beautifully decorated, open and wonderful for our group of 5 and a very happy dog. Everyone was comfortable and we all agree, we love it here! Barton Family from Colorado

7/17/11 We had the best time here. We went canoeing and kayaking on the pond - it was great. All of us hope we come back here. Thanks for sharing the beautiful house! Garden City, KS

Loved our stay at Star Mesa! Waking up to the mountain views was such a thrill! Enjoyed walking the grounds and the peaceful sounds of nature. The stars at night were incredible! It was the perfect end to our Colorado vacation! Parkville, MO

'Listen to the quiet!' That was what we said when we first arrived at Star Mesa. It was the perfect escape from our everyday world and all the stress it brings. Thank you for offering this place for such a relaxing vacation. We plan on returning. Hicksville, OH

8/12/12 Star Mesa is a gem. Waking up to sunrise over the mountains, seeing deer in our front yard and the peaceful nights are my idea of a relaxing vacation. We loved playing in the pond and canoeing in the morning is very romantic. Star Mesa's a great base for our 4-wheeling and rafting adventures. We hope to come back! Blair, NE

Star Mesa exceeded our expectations! This romantic cabin was perfect for our anniversary trip, from the secluded and quiet mornings on the deck to the adventures in Salida and points of interest beyond. We enjoyed the mountain scenery and comfortable temperatures for inspired painting sessions off the deck... Would tell ANYONE that this cabin is just ideal. Ada, OK

We arrived late Friday evening and woke to a magnificent view of the valley and mountains... our golden doodle may have had the best time of all. She could barely keep herself inside, and with the fenced yard this place was heaven to her! We can't wait to return, hopefully to experience a different season. This is such a magical place. Denver, CO

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About: Hi, I'm Lawton and I love Star Mesa! I lived here for five years before moving into town (Salida). By vacation renting I am still able to come out and enjoy the peace and beauty of Star Mesa. I love to read the guest comments! I found that I enjoy helping visitors have a memorable vacation so much, I'm now a realtor working with folks to purchase their own vacation homes, and I manage several rental homes for other owners. This area has been home for more than fifteen years now and I can't imagine being anywhere else! Enjoy and come back often, Lawton

                  Why Salida:
                  Star Mesa is right in the heart of Colorado! The river, mountains and natural beauty are all right here. The property is private and quiet, yet just a beautiful twenty minute drive to amazing, friendly Salida.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The delicious water from the well, the wild turkeys, deer and birds, the changing light on the mountains, all of the seasons, the peace, the beauty... and the delightful cozy home!
